EDITORS’ NOTES

Fergie’s debut solo album is an opulently appointed tour of pop's preceding half-century. "Fergalicious" is an ultra-modern update of J.J. Fad's "Supersonic," and "Clumsy" borrows from Little Richard's "The Girl Can't Help It," while "Mary Jane Shoes" nods to Bob Marley before it goes tearing off into ska punk. The wounded vocal showcase "Big Girls Don't Cry" plants its flag in power-ballad territory, but no matter the mood, will.i.am's production is uniformly sparkling, and Fergie's formidable voice and winking charisma tie the disparate styles together with a diamond-encrusted bow.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Let me explain...

Let me explain WHY I gave this one star.

It's simple really.

1. Lyrics are intellectually devoid. Like all too many songs Fergie's lack any thought at all. Just some another diva type who's so full of herself all she sings about is how hot she is (and she's got a funny face.)
2. Uninspired, unoriginal instrumentals. The sound is as generic and stereotypical 00s R&B as possible. No thought, no soul to it. They seem like an afterthought.
3. Boring beats. Beats are usually the one saving grace for anyone who, like Fergie, is trying to get by on past fame and looks. But there's nothing special here. There's a million songs out there that are better to dance to if that's what you like.

Stop loving something just because it's on MTV and your local top 40 radio station. There's a plethora of better music out there from virtually every genre and decade that is completely and utterly better than Fergie. This music is, put simply, commercial, moronic, and completely devoid of anything that can be considered talent or art. If you're a true fan of music, or even just R&B or hip hop, then you should really not like this album. Fergie, you are the Vanilla Ice of our time. Please stick to the Black Eyed Peas.

This album is the sign that the apocalypse is upon us.

I heard Glamorous on the radio, and I really liked it, so I decided to buy it. While I was in the middle of downloading it, the song changed to album only! I think iTunes should change it back so everyone can enjoy the music.
